Art, the Barrio and Chicana/o Activism Online
In this dynamic lecture, Dr. Álvaro Huerta will focus on the barrio and Chicana/o activism through the use of fine art, murals and photography. This includes highlighting the brilliant art of acclaimed painter Salomón Huerta (his sibling) to humanize los de abajo / those on the bottom against racist narratives, practices and policies towards brown people.
